And another sock monkey but this one is a glove doggie.
Amelia has claimed him so now have to make something for Kira.
(Oh and obviously we got the toy fill so Lara's monkey now has a tail!)

A hat for Amelia and a sock monkey for La

Amelia liked Lara's hat so much and wouldn't take it off so I made her one this morning. Used 8ply and as well as it taking longer I prefer the look of the Aran. 
I also finished off Lara's sock monkey. He still needs a tail but have to wait till the shop has some more toy fill as I've run out.

Crochet Hat for Lara

Been doing so much knitting lately I was inspired to do something different so this afternoon I made up a quick dc beanie for Lara. Here she is modelling it, 
I then added a little purple flower.
 
I'm really not very confident with crochet so very pleased how it came out - though not needing a pattern helped!

Hat for Penny


Finished off this peaches and cream flap hat today. Very cute, was unsure on the colourway but think it's come out really well.
Also managed a little bit of dyeing tonight but now must get on with household things (problem with school holidays not much gets done during the day).

Easter! And plenty of dyeing

Been a busy week with the girls end of term Easter activities.
But have managed some knitting and also a good dyeing session last night.

Some wool - custom 200g aran bfl, 5ply sock yarn - gorgeous purples!, peach organic merino, 8ply silk merino purples for me.
Also two soakers dipdyed. Small soaker in blues - for a fishy theme! And a girly peach to pink newborn one.

Today been finishing off this small boys soaker ready to be embellished tonight and off to it's  new home.

Monday - a new week

Well managed to get a few things finished over the weekend! Most of this is for my next store stocking which should be in a week or so.
Firstly have been doing some dyeing. 200g The Knittery superwash merino in purple/blue/green, 200g of woolganics organic merino pink/purple/blue and 150g of superwash merino in green/blue.
I also dip dyed the medium longies, all ready for embellishment. Really looking forward to finishing them! 
Also 2 very cute baby cocoons, saw this yarn and just knew they'd be perfect for the job! One in an emerald colour and one in pink/purple/red blend.
A medium pair of baby bootees. Getting ready for winter so my mind has turned to baby warmers! These are a 6-12 month size and have an i-cord drawstring for a perfect warm snug fit. Very cute too. Lara just had to try to try them on, she just loves shoes, but they are too small for her (luckily or she'd claim everything I make!)
And also a small soaker that I'm going to dip dye and embellish in boy colours/design.

Friday - ready for dyeing


Well not been great at finishing wip this week. But did finish of the medium Woolganics Organic Australian Merino longies last night. All ready for dyeing tonight and then onto the embellishing.

There is something so lovely and clean about them all white though! 

Still looking forward to getting the dyeing out tonight. 

And hopefully tomorrow will finish off all the bits and pieces I've been working on this week.
